Everton are likely to set an asking price of £15-20 million for Tottenham target Ross Barkley if they are to sell him in January, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Barkley is believed to have turned down a deadline day move to Chelsea at the very last minute, but the player himself denies having a medical at Stamford Bridge.
The midfielder was close to joining the champions after a reported £35m fee was agreed with Everton.
Last month, Ronald Koeman claimed Barkley was almost certain to leave Goodison Park by the close of the summer transfer window.
Not long after those claims, the Everton manager backtracked a little, suggesting the 23-year-old could still play a part for the Toffees this season.
But with just 11 months left on his Everton contract coupled with a hamstring injury that could keep him out until December, there’s a good chance Barkley has played his last game for the club.
Now all we can do is wait to see if Spurs cough up the cash to sign him in January. I think they’ll certainly try.
